Corrosion is a delicate problem over a crude oil production and development. Oil companies incur huge expense to solve such concern every year globally. Imidazoline is one of the nitrogen comprising heterocyclic compound which is been widely used for the profitable corrosion inhibitor, especially for diminishing the carbon dioxide prompted corrosion processes in the oilfield mining areas. Imidazoline derivative inhibitor is a substance which inhibits a particular chemical reaction or the other process that reduces the activity of a specific catalyst, reactant or enzyme. The inhibitors may be organic or inorganic. 2-methyl-4-phenyl-1-tosyl-4, 5-dihydro-1H-imidazole (IMI) is a corrosion inhibitor for P110 carbon steel in 1.0 M HCl solution (at 60 °C) by weight loss measurements, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and potentio dynamic polarization and tests. Imidazolines are organic compounds with two nitrogen atoms in the hetero cycle and three different sites suitable for bonding: pyridine like nitrogen atom N3, parole like nitrogen atom N1 and aromatic ring. Imidazolines are widely used in oil industry as corrosion inhibitors, but their properties and conduct are still not fully known. They also classified as cationic surfactants with the positive charge on imidazoline nucleus, which remains unaffected by alteration in pH of the environment, thereby easily get adsorbed on the metal which was charged negatively.
According to study, “Global Imidazoline Derivative Inhibitor Market Status (2015-2019) and Forecast (2020-2024) by Region, Product Type & End-Use” the key companies operating in the global imidazoline derivative inhibitor market are Cayman Chemical Company, King Industries Inc., Tokyo Chemical, Solvay.
The inhibition ability increases with the risen concentration of IMI inhibitor. The test results & fitting data indicate that the IMI inhibitor behaves as a mixed-type inhibitor and imitates the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Additionally, Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analyzed the protection behavior of IMI inhibitor on the surface of P110 carbon steel. The analysis guides that the addition of IMI into the aggressive solution can extra ordinarily guard carbon steel material from a macroscopic perspective.
Based on type, imidazoline derivative inhibitor market is segmented into phosphoric acid and alkyl benzothiazole. Phosphoric acid is used for their bioactive properties (drug and pro-drug), for designing of supra-molecular or hybrid materials, for bone targeting, for analytical purposes, for the functionalization of surfaces, for medical imaging or as phosphoantigen. Based on technique, market is segmented into electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, potentiodynamic polarization, and weight loss methods. In addition, based on application, market is segmented into laboratory, chemical industry and others.
Theimidazoline derivative inhibitor market is driven by growth in chemical industry, followed by rise in demand for specific formulationand increase in numerous industries such as metal processing, lubricants, power generation, oil & gas, construction, and automotive. However, rise in environmental concerns may impact the market. Moreover, growth in economy and stringent government regulations are key opportunities for market.
Based on geography, the North-American and European regions hold major share inimidazoline derivative inhibitor market owing to growth in chemical manufacturers in the regions. Whereas, the Asian-Pacific region is assessed to exhibit substantial growth rate due to rise in population & increase in disposable income over the forecast period. In Upcoming years, it is predicted that future of the market will be bright as a result of growth in technological advancements and rise in use of imidazoline derivative inhibitor in laboratories during the forecast period.
